There Will Be No Nigeria By The Time I Finish Giving My Testimony– Nnamdi Kanu

There Will Be No Nigeria By The Time I Finish Giving My Testimony– Nnamdi Kanu
Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, and Director of Radio
Biafra, Mr. Nnamdi Kanu has threatened that he would expose secrets that
are capable of sinking Nigeria. Kanu gave the threat at his resumed
trial on Tuesday. 
In the Tuesday’s ruling, trial Justice Binta Nyako of the Federal High
Court in Abuja granted the Federal Government the nod to shield
identities of witnesses billed to testify against Nnamdi Kanu
Justice Nyako who held that names of all the prosecution witnesses who
are mostly security operatives, would not be disclosed in any record of
the court proceedings also said that the witnesses would be allowed to
testify against the defendants behind a screen that would be provided by
the court.
 Justice Nyako however stressed that both the defendants and their
counsel would be allowed to see the witnesses who she said would enter
and exit the courtroom through a special door. However, Kanu immediately
rejected the court ruling, insisting that it was against the tenets of
Justice and fair hearing. 

“I won’t stand this travesty of Justice. Buhari spoke in public, he
accused me in public. I must also be allowed to stand my trial in
public”, Kanu bellowed from the dock. “This is nonsense! I will give
testimony before this court! By the time I finish, there will be no
Nigeria. This is no Sharia court. 

It is a court that operates under the common law. “There will be no
screening of witnesses, no fake identities or fake addresses. I cannot
be tried in secret. No! Nnamdi Kanu cannot be jailed in secret! They are
mad. Why must I be tried in secrecy by a government that does not obey
court orders. “They are killing my people in public, after killing my
people they want to try me in private? That person is mad. I won’t allow
it. “, Kanu fumed.

 The IPOB leader is facing an11-count charge alongside three other
pro-Biafra agitators, Mr. Chidiebere Onwudiwe, Benjamin Madubugwu and
David Nwawuisi.
